3:30 am
it i ithursday, january 21st. from abc news, this is "world news now." >> good morning. i'm marci gonzales in for reena ninan. >> i'm kendis gibson. of course, we've been talking about the big winter storm that is coming up. but d.c. had barely a trace and it is crippled even at this hour. that is our big story. we're starting with the wier weather bearing down on the east coast. about 50 million people you mentioned will be impacted this weekend. >> but as you said, washington, d.c. already got a taste with a smaller storm during evening rush hour. the 1.6 inches brought traffic on area highways and city streets to a standstill. residents complained the public works department got a late start on treating the roads and then its trucks couldn't get around all of those stuck cars. >> and look at this. the president's marine one helicopter was grounded. the presidential entourage had to drive back to the white house and even that took more than an hour. >> oh, my goodness. the limos and vans added to the mess.
3:31 am
were all over the washington area a athis app showed late last night. all those red lines all the places where there are backups and accidents. >> all those dots indicative of accidents in the d.c. area. tom roussey ofur station in washington, wjla, joining us now. taup, good morning. how's it looking? >> good morning, kendis. unfortunately, it is still looking bad. evening rush hour essentially has not ended in the washington, d.c. area. the d.c. beltway, the big interstate that goesn a circle around the city is still a mess in many places. interstate 95 in virginia south of d.c. still a mess. other interstates throughout the areq still bad, as well. slowly but surely things are better. but in just a few hours evening rush hour is going to bleed into morning rush hour. and what happened, as you said earlier, their crews were caught totally unawares. a lot of rds were untreated. even though it was a very small snowstorm, the cs drove over
3:32 am
that caused a huge amount of accidents and then firefighters and ambulances, they couldn't get to the accidents to clear them. so it just turnene into a giant mess. there are stories of folks who have been sitting in their cars for six, seven hours and have barely moved an inch. >> and yeah. >> this is something nobody really expected either. so they weren't prepared. people probablz didn't have water and the things they would need to be able to sit in their cars for that long. >> yeah. >> they weren't prepared at all. i mean, everybody's been talking about the big storm that's supposed to be coming for the weekend and it's almost like people, including the crews that are supposed to treat the roads kind of overlooked this one. yeah, it's been an absolute mess. obviously if people had known this was coming, they would have left work early. nobody knew it was coming. p.m. rush hour hit and all of a sudden it was the worst thing ever. this will go down ap one of the worst evening rush hours ever around here and again, it's still not over.
3:33 am
we're talking 1.6 inches that fell overnight or fell late during rush hour. this doesn't bode well for the nearly two feet of snow that's expected in the next 24 to 48 hours. >> no, that's what a lot of folks have befn saying. i mean, if you can't handle a little over an inch, how on earth is d.c. going to handle two feet? i will say though over the course of growing up around here and reporting around here, it's always the ones that catch you unaware that are the worst. i've seen very large snowstorms in the past and gegerally as long as people have ample wawaing they stay off roads. this one is going to hit on the weekend mostly. so they'll definitely be staying off the roads. and also the crews are ready when you know about it in advance. tonight neither the people who drive regular folks or the crews were ready. i think that's why it was so bad. i actually think this weekend, hopefully, it may not even go as bad as tonight has. >> what a mess it is, even in the early morning hours in the washington, d.c. area. crippled, people still stuck on highways there. tom, thankou, my friend.
3:34 am
appreciate it. >> and that really big snowstorm that we've bn talking about begins moving into thatrea later today and then wallops the rest of the east coast. >> let's get all the grizzly details from justin povick at ac accuweather. >> good morning to you. as we go throughout the next 24 hours, we will start to see our ststm system off the southeastern coast really organize, pull b bk some moisture and within a very cold r mass, we are concerned about very heavy snow from southwestern virginia all the way into coastal portions of central new england. how much? well, over a foot@of snow florida excess of 18 inches the possible toward baltimore and also d.c. heavy amounts down interstate 81, as well with significant amounts all the way toward boston. the potential there of up to 6 inches of snow and pounding surf, dangerous surf conditions along the eastern seaboard along with gusty winds, beach erosion possible, as well. kendis, marci, back to you. >> thank you.
